St. Vincent, The Walkmen, Beirut to Cross Brooklyn



    St. Vincent, The Walkmen and Beirut will headline the Crossing Brooklyn Ferry music festival, which despite the name will not take place on a boat. Instead the event will take place on May 3 through May 5 at the Brooklyn Academy of Music.

    The line-up was curated by Bryce and Aaron Dessner  of The National, who selected several artists they have toured with (St. Vincent, The Antlers) or worked with in the studio (Sharon Van Etten, My Brightest Diamond.) The full line-up is below, and will include films at the BAM Rose Cinemas and classical ensemble performances between artists. 

    Tickets go on sale on March 8 to Friends of Bam and March 12 to the public; they are $45 for each night. A $110 three day pass will go on sale on March 5 for Friends and March 6 to the public.
